Brief Summary:
A phase II clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and tolerability of induction and consolidation chemotherapy comprising Fludarabine, cytarabine and attenuated-dose Idarubicin (modified-FLAI) in the elderly patients with acute myeloid leukemia.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Acute Myeloid Leukemia Drug: induction chemotherapy (fludarabine, cytarabine, idarubicin) Phase 2

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 108 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Multicenter, Phase 2 Clinical Trial Evaluating the Efficacy and Tolerability of Induction and Consolidation Chemotherapy Comprising Fludarabine, Cytarabine, and Attenuated-dose Idarubicin in Elderly Patients With AML(Acute Myeloid Leukemia)
Study Start Date : June 2007
Actual Primary Completion Date : June 2009
Actual Study Completion Date : July 2010

Intervention Details:
    Drug: induction chemotherapy (fludarabine, cytarabine, idarubicin)
    fludarabine, cytarabine, idarubicin

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Complete remission rate
    Rate of complete remssion (CR) after two cycles of m-FLAI induction

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of serious adverse events (SAE)
    Number of patients dying from SAE related to m-FLAI induction

  2. Event Free Survival
    Event free survival defined as a period from study enrollment to death by from cause or relapse of disease after complete remission

  3. overall survival
    Overall survival defined as a period from study enrollment to death from any cause

  4. Predictive factors for Complete remission
    Compare complete remission rate according to existence of specific chromosome abnormality and Charlson comorbidity index to evaluate predicative impact of these factors.
